Cars appear to go faster up this hill than down it: an optical illusion or one of nature's mysteries?

Not at all what I expected and was amazed by it...Very freaky and entertaining! you drive “down” the hill and park at the designated spot, which is denoted by a white post. Once there, put your car in neutral, release the brake...ta daaa

Google informed me that the hill is open 24 hours a day. It is not. It could not have been more closed.

We visited in the shoulder season and most of the attraction was closed, although you could still get to where magnetic forces worked on your car.. good fun

What a cool feeling it is to be speeding backwards up a hill! Going in late October meant that the toll booth was closed so we got to try it for free. I thought it was awesome!

We were in town for the tidal bore so figured we might as well do Magnetic Hill also. It was ok, if you have kids traveling with you, I'm sure they'd like it. There is an admittance fee.
